    Thats a tough one since the computer is older (it came with Vista). There are some processors that could work with this motherboard, just search for AM2+ socket processors (or AM3 I heard works with that socket as well).

Note that with a motherboard upgrade you will have to generalize your drivers before you switch motherboards so it will pick up all your peripherals.
